7:03 am
between donald trump and the north korean leader is only intensifying with each promising the destruction of the other if threats become reality. just hours ago the first word from north korea since kim jong-un's regime announced plans to launch missiles into the waters off guam this morning saying if the trump administration does not want the american empire to meet its tragic doom, they had better talk and act properly. that statement clearly in response to president trump's string of warnings from his friday tweet saying the u.s. military is locked and loaded to his latest. >> if anything happens to guam, there's going to be big, big trouble in north korea. >> reporter: this morning the governor of guam releasing a video of a call he received from the president overnight. >> we are with you 1,000%. >> reporter: reassuring him of the white house's support even promising a tourism boon.

7:06 am
we're not sighing that. it's pretty common in north korea right now and remember that communique that said they wouldn't launch missiles towards guam until after the plan was approved sometime in mid-august, so it seems like we have a little bit of a calm period here now. >> and north korea, steve, is threatening to hit the waters off of guam. now, if that missile or warhead strikes within 12 miles of the island, does that constitute an act of war, and does the north have enough precision to ensure that it doesn't actually strike inside that 12-mile area? >> that's the big bet, matt. if he decides to launch those missiles towards guam and they land inside of 12 nautical miles or on guam, that's an act of war, but if he goes offshore and demonstrates he can ring that island with those four missiles he will have demonstratedthur y xtnee and would be a very disturbing indication. >> and the president also made news about venezuela. there is a near civil war
7:07 am
brewing there. take a listen to what he had to say. >> many options for venezuela including a possible military option, if necessary. >> so, steve, what do you think the president's play is here in venezuela? >> matt, i think he's only turning up the heat a bit on maduro. it's a civil war in venezuela. there is no place for the u.s. military, which side we would take. that said there's always plans in place for noncombatant evacuation of u.s. citizens and embassy personnel. that could be what he's referring to but certainly not a place where we'd want to get involved. >> all right. steve ganyard, thanks for your insight this morning, this saturday morning. and one more note, president trump is going to be wrapping up his working vacation from working vacation from bedminster, new injthere sefiy, renovations that kept him out of the west wing. spruced up floors, new carpets and new air-conditioning and heating system as well as new paint and an almost $3.5 million overhaul. trump is also holding what he
